Mining difficulty record set

The difficulty of mining BTC in 2021 set its first anti-record. This is bad for bitcoin miners, because the process of mining cryptocurrency is becoming more time-consuming and costly

Block hashing difficulty increased by 10.79% at 15:30 UTC on January 9, 2021. This figure was 20.65 trillion. This is the result of a sharp rise in the value of bitcoin above thirty, and then forty thousand dollars and an increase in the number of transactions.

However, according to statistics, mining income has also increased. Since September 2019, he has reached a new record. This made it profitable to mine not only on new, but also on old hardware. Used mining farms jumped wildly in price. We have already written about this earlier.
